As an Obsidian Publish user, I’m looking for a more intuitive and visible way to manage which pages are published.
My typical flow (and I think this would be common), is to publish at most one or two new pages at a time, but the current UI forces the user to consider all the documents in their vault at once.
I see two different ways of achieving this:
- Create a new frontmatter variable which is just a boolean, ie.
--- public: true ---
The downside here is that when publishing linked files, you’d need to modify multiple files to add this value.
- Provide a publication status indicator in the status bar (ie. bottom right hand side).
This indicator would have three states:
Clicking on this indicator would allow you to change the publication status of the page.
I prefer the second approach.
